Carolina Rain

Play

Written by: Tedd Swormstedt

Young enough to dream and old enough to drive
Lying on a blanket beneath a cotton candy sky
Our lips touched we felt it start
The rain began falling like our hearts

It soaked us down to the skin
We couldn’t hide anything
Hearts pounding like the thunder
Full of want, full of wonder
I heard mine call your name
In the Carolina rain

What was in our hearts took us by the hand
Showed us how to love like a woman and a man
We shared everything that day
Closer than the drops of falling rain

That soaked us down to the skin
We couldn’t hide anything
Hearts pounding like the thunder
Full of want, full of wonder
I heard mine call your name
In the Carolina rain

A memory’s all that’s left of that day
It comes storming back every time it rains

It soaked us down to the skin
We couldn’t hide anything
Hearts pounding like the thunder
Full of want, full of wonder
Mine still calls out your name
In the Carolina rain

I never will forget that day
The first love we made
In the Carolina rain
